At this page you'll find the smallest (ca 80) solutions of
the tough perfect-square puzzle. De rules are:
A solution is original or 'primarily' when it's not a multiple of a smaller one
and it's not a construction of other perfect rectangles or squares.
The puzzle surface is a rectangle (the larger the tougher)
The pieces are square and always smaller than the short edge
We only work with concrete sizes e.g. centimeters, inches or use square paper
Choose freely which squares you use, as long as they are all different
The rectangle needs to be tiled completely, and pieces may never overlap
All following solutions are found using
algorithm in Borland Delphi 6 Personal. They are ordered by length.
